Director: Tim Burton
A teenage boy (Asa Butterfield) exploring an island discovers a house that is continually in 1943 and the children who live there each have a special power and Miss Peregrine (Eva Green) who runs the house. He is drawn into a fight across time to protect the children in the house from a renegade group of people with peculiar powers let by Samuel L Jackson. The film is visually impressive as expected from a film from Tim Burton, though the plot does have its problems in places. Some of the big names have only very small parts and so the acting is variable. The best performances come from Eva Green as Miss Peregrine and Ella Purnell as the central child in the story and the love interest to Asa Butterfield.
